Hey ya'll!

I'm just a twenty-something year old trying to navigate through life! Eating healthy doesn't have to be bland. I love to cook healthy foods that are easy on the wallet. Enjoy!

October is for Pumpkin Stuff

October is for Pumpkin Stuff

Happy Monday ya'll! I hope everyone is soaking up the end of October. I am thrilled for October to end because that means Christmas is that much closer! I love October though for many reasons, one of them is that I have an excuse to use pumpkin excessively. 

Pumpkin is basically a god. I make sure I have at least one can of organic pumpkin puree on hand at all times. 

I really love pasta, and with the colder months coming I started to crave it. So, I incorporated pumpkin and pasta in the same dish. How could you go wrong?

Gnocchi with Pumpkin Sauce

This was the perfect combination of hearty and filling. I felt so satisfied after, but still could eat so much more. 

Ingredients

  • Vegan Gnocchi from TJ's 
  • Home made Pumpkin Sauce
    • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
    • 4 tbs tomato paste
    • 1/4 tomato, chopped
    • 1/4 onion chopped
    • 1 cup vegetable broth
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp pepper
    • 1 tbs cummin
    • 1 tsp chili powder
    • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
    • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
